Sarah Silverman Took Us Down

Apparently nothing is more important in the world than Sarah Silverman and her uterus. As the entire world, and her father, have decided to visit (and revisit) the website to read and comment on Rabbi Rosenblatt’s article.
Unfortunately, our server is having trouble keeping up with this unbelievable volume of traffic.

We apologize if you’re among those who haven’t been able to access the site (but then how are you reading this?), and congratulations, if you’ve made it to this point.

We’re temporarily tweaking the server’s capabilities right now to handle this very incredible spike, and appreciate your understanding. If you can’t get on, please try again in a few minutes.

    WOW as long as we have our priorities straight, what a world.

  2. This is the problem with using Facebook comments on a site that is supposedly targeting the Orthodox Jewish community. Things go a way too viral and suddenly the whole world is barging into our safe spaces, inundating us with their uninformed, hateful opinions, using foul language and making it an unpleasant experience for genuine Jewish Press readers to visit this site. In my opinion, you should rethink the Facebook comments plugin and moderate comments that use foul language.

  3. re: "Apparently nothing is more important in the world than Sarah Silverman and her uterus." Huh? Actually, you are 1/2 right: " nothing is more important in the world than Sarah Silverman," for she is Queen of Jewesses.

  4. Not a whole lot of the commenters were from the "Orthodox" mindset…

  5. God HAS…he "gave" us Ms. Sarah, bless Him.

  6. Robert Armin says:

    It would be lovely if the Jewish Press could enter the 21st Century one of these days. Even the 20th Century would be an improvement.

  7. Dolores Marconi says:

    I hate these phony sites.

  8. Who or what is "phony"?

  9. Stephen Leavitt says:

    Servers are good now, by the way.

    Re: "Apparently nothing is more important in the world than Sarah Silverman and her uterus." That is exceptionally snarky and snide coming from you, editors of the Jewish Press. You are the ones who published such an inflammatory and bigoted commentary on Sarah Silverman and her uterus — not "the entire world" or "her father." Let's not pretend that increased web traffic and publicity due to the almost-certain controversy you knew Rabbi Rosenblatt's article would spark wasn't the entire point of publishing the letter on this open forum in the first place. That would just be hypocritical and not at all becoming of a religious org…oh…wait…that is EXACTLY your style, isn't it? Nevermind.

    Dolores Marconi The why read them?

  12. If Sarah Silverman is the Left's Joan of Arc, then the Right has already won the war.

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times, alternating hands? I have heard it said that a vessel is used only in the morning upon awakening. What are the rules pertaining to young children? What is the protocol if no vessel is available? Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
